Plant ID help

Use this forum for identification of plants and flowers found in countries outside the UK. To allow us to help provide accurate identification we need clear pictures of the whole plant, where it is growing and close up pictures of flowers, buds or seed heads if any available. It would also be useful to see pictures showing the leaf attached to the stem.

Does anyone know what these are and if they’re safe to feed a Hermann? Leaves and stalks are hairy like nettles

How beautiful. Its one of the Scented Pelargomiun (if you brush the leaves with your hand you will see why) and they are fine to feed tortoises in moderation.
Here is our entry -- https://www.thetortoisetable.org.uk/pla ... nt=239&c=5
We do need to update our photos and are getting around to that now but if you would like to send us your photos in high resolution along with your name for crediting we can add your one as well.
It needs to go to contact@thetortoisetable.org.uk.
Many thanks
